Guns can/would still get into Chicago, even if Chicago was 100 miles from another state with lax gun laws, so it really doesn't matter at the end of the day. Gun control doesn't work unless you expand those gun laws nationwide... which seeing how armed this country is overall, would never work. But, that's a whole nother topic for a whole nother thread...

Mississippi could increase its population by 60%, if it annexed three adjacent counties: Shelby TN, Mobile AL and Orleans LA.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Columbus, GA with Phenix city, Alabama.

Chicago kind of borders Michigan if you were to take a boat. But technically, I believe the portion of Lake Michigan abutting Chicago would be considered Illinois and not Chicago.

Wisconsin has Beloit, LaCrosse, Superior and Marinette in the state line, with Kenosha now 3.5 miles.

Richmond IN touches the IN/OH border.

Beloit WI touches the IL border.

Dubuque IA touches the IL and WI border, where it meets with IA.

Orleans Parish doesn't even border MS. You'd have to go through St. Tammany Parish first.

If you navigate down the Pearl River, you'll enter the Gulf with Mississippi on your left and Orleans Parish in the right, before entering open gulf waters.

A shocking number of people in Illinois do not realize the Mississippi River is the border. A shocking number.

Many people don't know that Chicago borders Indiana or that Memphis borders both Arkansas and Mississippi. Many also don't know that Savannah borders South Carolina across the Savannah River. I honestly find it strange that Hardeeville, SC is NOT part of the Savannah metro area which is completely in Georgia. Savannah and Hilton Head SC do share an airport though.

I think it IS well known that NYC borders New Jersey and that Kansas City MO is on the border with Kansas.

I'm honestly not sure if Las Vegas city limits border Arizona, I just know Clark County does.
